More Than 5,000 Optometrists Strengthen Mobile Presence
Vision Source® partners with EyeXam Mobile Platform to reinforce presence
KINGWOOD, TX (October 25, 2012) –In a company-wide concerted effort to drive Vision Source® member practices to lead in the digital age of optometry, the world's largest eye care professional alliance has renewed its partnership with leading eye exam mobile application (app), EyeXam Mobile Platform. Through this partnership, Vision Source® members have enhanced business listings which increase the opportunity for consumers to find them for an exam and regularly communicate with these eye doctors.
"Our members want to be more involved, present and on the cutting edge of technology and it’s our obligation to provide them with the tools to do so," says Vision Source® Chief Marketing Officer, Bryan D. Pinciaro. "We are committed to getting them there while also advancing the future of the eye care industry as a whole," he adds.
In May 2012 Vision Source® announced its support of the first generation EyeXam Mobile Platform along with vision care benefits provider, VSP. The updated, next generation app launched last month and provided new features such as bi-directional doctor/patient messaging, social media integration and more additions aimed at enhancing communication and connectivity between optometrists and patients. Both versions of the app were created by Global EyeVentures.
"We are excited to continue our partnership with Vision Source® by offering a mobile solution to member offices to help with driving more traffic to their offices and connecting them with their existing patients using a bi-directional and cost effective mobile patient communication system," says Global EyeVentures CEO, Nikki Iravani, OD.
